About me

I consider myself to be a genuine, kind, caring, reliable professional person who strives to help others reach their personal goals by providing counselling as unique as you are. I work with individuals and couples.

I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space in which you can be heard. I work with individuals and couples. I am an accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and work under their professional, ethical framework.

I offer long and short term work with a psychodynamic approach; by this I mean as well as discussing current problems we may explore the influence of the past on your present day thoughts, beliefs, feelings and behaviours and discuss how these may be impacting on your life today and explore alternatives if you choose to do so. I will support you in working at your own pace with empathy and understanding as the therapeutic relationship is an important part of our work.
